Gilding Flakes Reindeer

This week's Merry Monday challenge is reindeer:


I decided to make a reindeer using gilding flakes.

 
I covered some cs with double sided tape, removed the tape protector, and covered it with gilding flakes in a gorgeous range of colours.  I then die cut both the reindeer and the sentiment.

I wish I could get inspired to use up my stash of dp but mostly it doesn't work for the cards I make these days.  But in this case, a piece of snowflake covered dp blended with the gilding flakes really well so I went with it.

Here's a close-up of the gorgeous colours in the gilding flakes:


Thanks for dropping by today!






Supplies:
Paper - cs, American Crafts dp
Size - A2
Accessories - Penny Black reindeer die, Tattered Lace Merry Christmas die, gilding flakes, double sided tape

Your reindeer is gorgeous Susan. Love it done in the deep colours of gilding flakes that you used. And it looks amazing jumping through the snowflakes. xx

Oh, my, but this reindeer is gorgeous, Susan! The gilding flakes are the perfect colors to make this reindeer look like the stars are shining off his coat! The white snowflakes on the Kraft card are a perfect background for him!

That is very cool with the guilding flakes! Such a pretty card. Do you just rub the flakes kind of firmly on the double sticky?

Susan said...

Yes, you rub them quite firmly on the double sticky. I drop on quite a lot of flakes so that all of the sticky is covered and then rub. There will be quite a bit of excess flakes that rub off but I just put those back in the pot to use next time.

I love how you used the gilding flakes on your reindeer, what a beautiful effect and looks great on the kraft background.

I really wanted to use my gilding flakes, but still didn't do it. You've inspired me as this is stunning!
